Former Hawkeye Evans Traded From NBA 76ers to Raptors

Posted:

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded former Iowa Hawkeye Reggie Evans to the Toronto Raptors for shooter Jason Kapono.

Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski says the trade addresses Philadelphia's goal of getting better from the perimeter. Kapono's .454 shooting percentage on 3-pointers is tied with Steve Kerr for the best in NBA history.

The Raptors get rebounding help in Evans, who averaged 3.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game last season. the 29 year-old Reggie Evans played two seasons at Iowa from 2000-2002 under former Hawkeye head coach Steve Alford.
